BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Gritty McDuff's Brewing Company
Maine, United States
grittys.com

Style: American Pale Ale (APA)

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 4.50%

Availability: Year-round

Notes / Commercial Description:
Original Pub Style is a light copper-colored medium-bodied with a nice dry bite at the finish. A subtle combination of Cascade and Willamette hops give this ale a fine floral aroma and a slightly fruity aftertaste. The taste captures the freshness of a hand-crafted brew pub ale that goes right from the conditioning tank to your glass!

Draught: This one pours a clear, golden color. It had a wisp of a white head on it that left a little lacing. The aroma is a bit lighter. Some malts, as well as grassy and earthy hop notes. The taste is clean, and leans towards the lighter side. Some malts, and a little earthy hops. A slightly dry finish. Pretty easy drinking.

another generic English based ale form this mob, lackluster at best. the taste is indeed a bit like boddingtons, maybe with malts more on the stale side and a touch sweeter, but the same basic concept is happening here. pils malts and metals, not the best finish. the issue of no carbonation has turned me right off from grittys beer, they all are plagued by that issue. this could be nice on a nitro tap with all kinds of texture, but as it stands from a flat lukewarm tap, it didn't do the trick for me. easy drinking enough, but some co2 could really liven this up. not a beer to avoid altogether like their ipa is, but one that needs some reworking to become something id want to procure again.

Little to no head. amber color.
Very light. almost watery. a little flat.
Easy drinking. session beer with mild bitter finish.
Meh.
Not much more to say about this beer. kinda dragging it out now. its not quite average. very easy to drink right up there with corona, miller etc.
